Keeping your WordPress website secure is very important. There are multiple measures that can be taken to improve the system’s security and prevent a malicious attack, but that’s a matter for a different blog post. Having your website hacked could have a devastating effect on your business so it is imperative that you prepare for the worst by backing up files and data on a regular basis.
Our Backup Services
All WordPress websites on our dedicated server are covered by our standard backup system. This system takes an incremental backup everyday, and a full backup once a week. This allows us to roll a website back to any point within the last week once a compromise is noticed. This is great if you notice the attack straight away, however if the compromised system is not treated within a week, in some cases nothing that can be done to fix the issues. This would result in the entire website and all associated data being lost, an expensive problem if your business relies on your website.
If your business relies on the data gathered by your WordPress website, we recommend a premium backup system combined with a cloud based storage solution like Amazon S3. Our usual set up allows us to save data from the previous 7 days, plus save a full backup including data every week. The Backup files are then stored on your cloud based storage solution away from your hosting account. If required we can instantly access a version of the website from the previous 7 days, or 1 from every week since the backup began. A very important feature for busy ecommerce or subscriber based websites.
The only limitation on how many backups you keep is set by your cloud storage solution costs. Amazon S3 can cost as little as $0.0125 per GB per month, an incredibly small price to pay for premium piece of mind.
